The Tyre Recovery Association (TRA) represents the UK’s tyre recovery sector, which processes over 40 million used tyres every year. A key role is to represent and promote good practice within the tyre recovery sector and to provide an externally audited, legally compliant tyre collection and recovery service which provides protection and peace of mind for all those who generate waste tyres across the UK.
Each year Britain discards over 40 million old car tyres which all need to be reprocessed or recycled.
To handle all of these tyres efficiently and responsibly the Tyre Recovery Association have created a unique industry partnership: The Tyre Industry Federation Responsible Recycler Scheme – A uniquely successful industry initiative.
The TRA encourages consumers to make recycling a habit as well as tyre collectors and recyclers.
They believes a circular economy is essential for environmental sustainability. By transforming used tyres into a useful commodity, carbon emissions are reduced and the environment benefits.
There is an increasing number of opportunities to use tyre-derived materials, creating new businesses as well as jobs. Consumers can be confident that TRA’s Responsible Retailer partners will process used tyres in an environmentally friendly and acceptable manner.
